Join our intrepid explorer David Price (he’s the one wearing a pith helmet and holding a banner) as he tackles the mighty science challenges of St James’s Park.

Survive dodging ducks, bounding over bridges, wondering about water and fantasising over flowers to become the ultimate park ranger.

No volunteers will be harmed on this science trail, honest.
